Season 7 Episode 20

The One with Ross and Monica's Cousin

Aired Thursday 8:00 PM Apr 19, 2001 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • Goof: In the beginning of this episode, Monica asked Phoebe to help her make up the guest room for her cousin, Cassie, who was coming to visit for a few days. It seems odd that Phoebe and Rachel did not invite Cassie to Monica's bridal shower, since they knew she was in town to visit Monica.

    • Continuity: In this episode Rachel is surprised to learn that she has to throw Monica a bridal shower. A few episodes earlier, however, in "The One With The Nap Partners", she knew that it was one of the responsibilities of being a maid-of-honor. Phoebe was going to be Monica's maid-of-honor at that time and Rachel says to her, "Yeah, well I hope Monica forgives you after you throw her vegetarian, voodoo, goddess-circly shower!"

    • Continuity: When Monica knocks on Phoebe's apartment door the number is 16. In "The One with Joey's New Brain" when the old guy came to pick up his cell phone, her apartment number was 14.

    • Goof: In the beginning of the episode when Monica is folding laundry and talking to Phoebe about the wedding, a boom mic is visible at the top left of the screen for a few seconds.

    • Goof: When Cassie is showing Ross her freckles on her left shoulder in the next shot Ross is looking at her right shoulder but Cassie is not showing him anymore. Her hands are by her side.

  • Quotes

    • Joey: (worrying about his nude scene in the movie) My grandmother's gonna see this!
      Phoebe: (coyly) Grandma's gonna have to get in line...

    • Monica: Chandler and I have this pact not to have sex again until the wedding.
      Ross: A no-sex pact, huh? I actually have one of those going on with every woman in America.

    • Rachel: Hey Pheebs, can I talk to you over here for a second?
      Phoebe: Yeah!
      Monica: Subtle, guys!
      Phoebe: What?
      Monica: I know you're planning my surprise bridal shower.
      Rachel: (laughs uncomfortably) Okay... well don't ruin it... Play along at least.
      Monica: (smiling impishly) Okay... Sorry... (goes into the guest bedroom.)
      Rachel: (to Phoebe) Oh, my God! We have to throw her a shower?!

    • Monica: (about Joey's nude scene) Hey... what'd you decide to do about the movie?
      Joey: (frustrated) I don't know... It's not like it's porn... this is a serious, legitimate movie, y'know? ...and the nudity is really important to the story.
      Monica: That's what you say about porn.

    • Phoebe: Well, when can we have this shower?
      Rachel: She has got so much going on, we have only two options. We have Friday...
      Phoebe: Well that's only two days away. What is the other option?
      Rachel: Yesterday.
      Phoebe: Well if we make it yesterday, woo-hoo! We're done!

    • Cassie: (seeing Ross staring at her) Oh, my God! You do a great Chandler!
      Ross: Uh-huh... Yeah, well, I have a knack for impressions.
      Cassie: Well, maybe once we get reacquainted, you can do me!
      Ross: Yeah... No!

    • Ross: And I'll always remember that summer because that's when I realized that we are related. Y'know, we're not just two random people, thrown together... we share genetic material.
      Cassie: It took you that long to figure it out, huh?
      Ross: I'm a little slow. (to himself) Just as our children would be.

    • Woman Shower Guest: So, what time is Monica supposed to get here?
      Phoebe and Rachel: (to each other) I don't know.
      Rachel: (to the woman) Excuse us for a minute.
      (Phoebe and Rachel go into the kitchen.)
      Rachel: (to Phoebe) You didn't tell her to come?
      Phoebe: You were supposed to tell her!
      Rachel: No I wasn't! You were supposed to tell her to come, and I was supposed to bring the cake!
      Phoebe: Fine, I'll go call her.
      Rachel: Yes! And please tell her to bring a cake!

    • Cassie: (after Ross tries to hit on her) What the hell are you doing?
      Ross: (thinking) Say something clever... Okay, doesn't have to be clever, just has to be words... Say some words... Any words will do... Oh, my God, this is the longest that anyone has not talked--ever! There is nothing you could say to make this worse so just say something! (to Cassie) I haven't had sex in a very long time... (thinking) Yeah, you really shouldn't have said anything.

    • Cassie: (about Phoebe staring) What?
      Phoebe: (thinking) Say something! ...Say anything! ...Ask her out, she's not your cousin.
